"The Train Show" No Longer Airing on RFD TV

The Train Show, a show about model trains that aired on RFD TV, has posted an announcement on their web site explaining "We are no longer on RFD TV due to circumstances beyond our control."  The show is still available through The Train Show web site to members.  Membership will cost you $14.99 per year.  For those of you not familiar with the show, it is a neat show about model railroading that has "home made" production qualities.  Since I don't have access to RFD TV, I paid the membership fee and download the shows and watch them on my PC.  You can view some sample segments of the show here for free.  Shows are also available for purchase on DVD.

UPDATE:  If you are a fan of technology you have to check out the Mc Kinley Railway Bigger and Bolder links on the The Train Show site that take you on a tour of a layout that is computer controlled using Digitrax (a broadband conneciton is recommended).  These links are contained within the second "row" of the Digitrax DCC European Introduction section.
